The Nigerian journalist and businessman, Dele Momodu, has declared that he has an interest in contesting for president in the 2023 presidential election.
He declared this at the People’s Democratic Party’s headquarters in Abuja today and promised to make Nigeria a better place if he wins the election.
The former presidential candidate of the National Conscience Party (NCP) in the 2011 presidential election added that he is prepared to run for president.
“I won’t be intimidated by anyone who feels he or she can buy the whole of Nigeria with loads of cash fraudulently.” He said.
In a press conference with reports, Dele Momodu said:
“After due consultations with my family, friends and some stakeholders, I have arrived at the decision to contest the 2023 presidential election on the platform of our great party, the PDP, if selected as the party’s candidate.
I hasten to add that this is my personal decision, although I have received advice, encouragement, and support from diverse quarters since I started my consultations.”
I, therefore, offer myself to the PDP as the best aspirant to turn the fortunes of our esteemed party and our well-endowed country around. In this regard, and with a deep sense of humility and profound respect, ”
“I urge the party not to consider picking its candidate based on the usual considerations that have spectacularly failed our country in the past. The mood of the teeming youths, and indeed every patriotic Nigerian, who we need to come out en masse to vote for our party, aligns with this view.
It is for this reason that I invite our great party, PDP, to accept that it must search for a veritable flag bearer with the requisite leadership and visionary qualities that Nigerians now earnestly yearn for.
I’m convinced that the time has come to seriously challenge and dislodge those politicians who have held our country to ransom by kidnapping, hijacking, and destroying the future of our younger generation and generations yet unborn.”
“I’m better prepared now than at the time of my first foray into the fray in 2011, and I am fully ready and certainly capable of the onerous tasks and responsibilities ahead.
I wish to place on record my firm promise and commitment not to be harassed, bullied or intimidated by anyone who feels he or she can buy the whole of Nigeria with loads of cash fraudulently and illegally filched and taken from the Nigerian people.”
Dele Momodu also said that Nigeria needs a reset and “a total redirection”, and he can make it happen.
